2018 Golden Plate Awards Judges
For a quintessential quality, yet informal dining experience that takes you into the heartland of the iconic Aussie landscape, this is your destination. Vast views across an unforgiving landscape, with sweeping views to the distant ranges, yet this venue and its accommodation sits comfortably atop a low rise that commands the prospect in all its glory. The immediate surrounds have been tamed and planted informally to look as if they’ve been in place for a century or more.
The visitor departs well fed on fresh locally produced lamb, beef and trout, beautifully presented, yet never fussy. The wines, craft beers and ciders are exceptional and local to the venue. There’s a sense of having spent a few hours in the great generous heartland of this bright and sunburnt country, with none of the usual attendant discomforts and dangers. Highly recommended, especially for those of us that enjoy to cast a line to catch a seriously fresh meal. Youngsters love the space and freedom.
